i think an RTFA is appropriate here =D

when used for containers of edibles, they use an edible lubricant.

Here's the quote from the article:
The approach also allows them to vary the ingredients of the textured layer and the lubricant to fit the properties of different liquids — for food applications, the coatings are derived from edible materials. (The company does not divulge the specific ingredients. “We use things that are, maybe, parts of foods, you’d say,” Mr. Smith said. “You wouldn’t make a meal out of our coatings.”)
I'm not sure that qualifies as "edible," and it certainly does not inspire confidence. Ricin is derived from the edible Castor Oil plant, but I sure wouldn't want it in my food.
is no one else here as big an xfiles nut as me? there's so much more material that i can think of right now to fill the show, especially post 2012. the reason they're doing it is cuz they both love the show as much as we fans, and the material couldn't have been that light considering it won multiple emmys both for cast and crew.
I hadn't heard that either of them loved the show. David left, and Gillian has just moved on to better parts. Playing Scully just seems less interesting of a part than what she's currently got in her busy schedule. Not saying they shouldn't, just surprised.

Steven Spielberg to direct Ready Player One film adaptation…

Whoa.

I wonder how they're going to represent the 2112 planet and incorporate the music. One of my favorite albums of all time, but I can't imagine it's all that well known by the general public.

Man, kudos to them. Competition is a wonderful thing.

It will be interesting to see how they handle abusers. Costco used to have a 6 month return policy, cut it down to 3. I knew a guy would would get stuff there and keep it for as long as he could before returning it for a full refund.

With New Nonstick Coating, the Wait, and Waste, Is Over

Okay, is it just me, or is the company name a bit off: "LiquiGlide?" Not sure I want to pour anything edible out of a bottle that's been made by LiquiGlide.

Get anodized aluminum cookware instead. You can use metal utensils with it. It's the way to go.


It's actually not for cookware. It's for the inside of bottles and other containers to make the liquid run out more easily instead of clinging to the bottle. It's fine for nonedibles like paint, glue, or toothpaste. What worries me is this new substance leaking into ketchup or mayonnaise and people ingesting it.

LOL.

There's no way Cruz will get the nomination. He's bucking for a VP slot. Which is terrifying.

Actually, I pretty much only played the games for the singleplayer. Really loved ODST, Reach, and Halo 4 in particular.

Why the hell aren't we getting THOSE on PC?

Because MS doesn't give two shits about PC gaming? Because they think we're a bunch of dirty pirates? I mean, look at how poorly Steam is doing.

Shorter answer: MS has its head up its ass.

Good Russia can keep this F2P likely P2W garbage!

In Russia, the game pays you to win!

Hmm, might have to rethink that one.

This is pretty common licensing practice in the corporate world. usually you have to even generate the hash yourself, submit it to the company and then they generate a key for you based on it.

He could have just contacted EA and asked them to remove these limitations for them to do reviews (literally a 3 minute phone call), but he decided to cry about it on the internet instead.

This DRM is stupid, don't get me wrong... but it's not out of the ordinary in any way.

EA supposedly has good customer service, but I doubt it's a 3 minute phone call.

So no, EA isn't scanning your hard drive looking at what kind of porn you're into.

Too bad they're not doing market research for an AAA XXX game. The Frostbite engine would render that in exquisite detail.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Municipal Violations.

That's just the worst. It's essentially a backdoor tax on the poor, and I loathe the continuous movement toward privatization. Paying $1000+ for $150 fine because you can't pay is so wrong. You should either pay or do community service, not be continuously fined.

Well, it's my understanding the whole reason it's 6 episodes is to fit around their existing work schedules.


Yeah, I didn't mean do X-Files to the exclusion of the other stuff, but doing two full time shows already is pretty taxing, and I always felt her role on the show was pretty boring from an actor's perspective.

Mixed feels on xfiles, after all these years...not holding my breath.


I'm surprised that Gillian Anderson would agree to do it. She's got a much more challenging, interesting, and juicier role as Stella Gibson on The Fall, as well as already playing a Dr. on Hannibal (which I've not seen).

Arcades were fantastic in the pre-1995 era. Sadly not as useful anymore due to not delivering enough value per dollar as consoles became better.

Kind of like movie theaters vs. your home theater set up.

That license plate tracking thing is the worst. I don't think the scanners themselves are bad, but retaining the info for longer than 14 or 30 days allows abusers to establish a pattern. It's essentially warrantless location tracking.

Good on Gencon but likely an empty threat as they're apparently contracted they're for another 4 years. And why do these States even bother with this nonsense when it's just overturned at the Federal level? Employers are going to discriminate in all kinds of ways regardless. You have to be a tool to get caught doing it.

Yeah, momentum is definitely against anti-gay laws and sentiment. Welcome to the 21st century muthafckahz. It's kind of sad to say that this won't even come up in 20 years as the majority of people that feel this way will all be dead.
